Nestled within a beautiful highland Forest, our Club campsite at Nairn is level and well sheltered and has a rural feel. You might even be lucky enough to spot a red squirrel or two.

There are well maintained facilities, including a laundry and a recreation room with table tennis, also a small site shop. The site’s delightful location offers extensive walking directly into the wood. There is also a great walk to the beach.

The attractive seaside town of Nairn has two Blue Flag beaches and a promenade with fantastic views over the Moray Firth. The town hosts a number of festivals including a Book and Arts Festival, International Jazz Festival and the Highland Feast – a food and drink festival. And in August is hosts Scotland’s only free-entry Highland Games.

Nairn is also a centre of golfing excellence with two 18-hole championship golf courses - the Nairn Golf Club and the Castle Stewart Golf Course which is a regular host of the Scotish open. Within an hour’s drive of the town you can visit Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Clava Stones, Loch Ness, Castle Urquhart, Culbin Forest and the new viewpoint tower, the Cairngorms National Park, Cairngorm Mountain Railway, the Strathspey Steam Railway, Ballindalloch Castle, Elgin Cathedral and the Whisky Trail.

Inverness is 15 miles from the campsite. Here you can explore its old town or enjoy walks along the Caledonian Canal and the River Ness. Or take a boat trip to see the resident bottle-nose dolphins in the Moray Firth.

Easy to find, easy to access site, with a very warm welcome and lots of help from the managers...

This review is for Nairn

Easy to find, easy to access site, with a very warm welcome and lots of help from the managers Dave and Kath. The site is very well kept, nicely situated in trees, with extensive woodland paths, some waymarked. Strangely for Scotland, the midges weren't a problem at all, even given the close proximity to wildlife (lots of birds and red squirrels on site). The toilet block, whilst kept impeccably clean, is looking tired and dated, being of a 'portakabin'-type construction. At least the showers have an on/off tap so you don't keep having to press a button to keep the shower going! The pitches are nicely spaced, and all on sandy, well-drained soil. No real need for rocky ground pegs for the awning here. The weekly visit of the Fish and Chip van was keenly anticipated when we were there, it was very good quality food. There are lots of things to do in the local area, although bicycles/car would be recommended as the site is about 4 miles from Nairn (if you use the footpath rather than walk along the main road). The only major disappointment for us was the amount of road noise from the A96. It is a straight road with a 60mph speed limit, so if there's a noisy motorbike or car travelling at speed, it is most definitely audible on site. As well as the road, one edge of the site backs on to an industrial unit, which seems to start work at 7.30am on weekdays and sometimes at the weekend, so there is the sound of forklifts reversing, hammering, a bell when the phone rings, that sort of thing. If you were at the far end of the site, away from the office, you wouldn't hear this. Overall, a pleasant and enjoyable stay, but don't expect country peace and tranquility as the road noise (for us country dwellers) was too intrusive. C&CC please invest some money in a new toilet/shower block over the winter as this is needed. I would still visit again though, as there are lots of things to do and see in the surrounding area.

This is a well run woodland site and great for forest walks.

This review is for Nairn

This is a well run woodland site and great for forest walks. However it was not as charming as we had expected. It is on the A96 and noisy. Although the walk to the beach is super (through woodland) it does require you to cross the busy road and dodge golf balls on the links course. We asked advice about beach access but the team weren't forthcoming and there was no map. The facilities are like the site, clean and well run but lacks charm - they are essentially portacabins. Given the criticism poured on the Spey site for its out of date block (which btw is lovely and welcoming) I was expecting much more from the rave reviews for this site. Unlikely to rush back and for the noise conscious, don't plan a week here.

We would visit this site again.

This review is for Nairn

We would visit this site again. There is a communal room where people can enjoy a game of pool what TV or just sit and chat. The small play area is well situated and children can play safely. Dogs are welcome. There are plenty of walks around the site. It is very central to different attractions around the Moray Firth. We had plenty places to visit that was value for money. A visit to Lock Ness Exhibition centre was well planned and layered out, a more up-to-date way of sharing information. Although we did not see any dolphins we watched the seals playing around the Firth. In the campsite we sat a watched Golden eagles soring high above the trees, Different varieties of birds, and listened to the squirrels chatting. We must not forget of course nessy hunting. Inverness is a very busy city and parking is very reasonable. Nairn is a lovely coastal town with fab beach and play area. As we ate more out in different restaurants we found prices competitive and no complaints. about the quality of the local dishes Lobster in Cromarty was very tasty. A visit to Fort George is a must as is the Culloden battle field. We did not manage to visit everything, but we will be going back. So much to see in the Highlands and people so welcoming. Thank you to the Staff at Nairn Camping site.

Staff were very helpful at all times.

This review is for Nairn

Staff were very helpful at all times. Pitches well laid out amongst the pine trees which gave a lovely smell with the fresh morning dew. Thought the room adjoining reception having a TV, table tennis and a pool table was just great. As the service buses stop outside the Camp, I was able to use my Scottish bus pass to leave the motorhome behind and visit Nairn, then on another day, Inverness. Will definitely be back as it is such an interesting area to explore.
